Before you get completely inundated by press “reactions” to President Trump’s remarks today to the United Nations, here is a link to a transcript of what the man actually said:  

https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/09/19/remarks-president-trump-72nd-session-united-nations-general-assembly.

I personally think that we tend to get a little too much edited reactions, these days, and not enough unabridged texts.   So, without further ado, “here you go.”

To me, if you read the entire thing in context, I think that it’s a pretty well-written speech and maybe a good wake-up call.   I sincerely hope that it has some of its apparently-intended effects.



Thanks, but I don't need your transcript. I watched the whole thing in real time - and couldn't be more horrified.

Also, see Les_Kloo above

Should try to get Huffy to do a version of this - I think he would do it justice

Quote by: Les_Kloo
Sung to the tune Mrs. Robinson (of course) by Simon and Garfunkel:

What’s up with you, Mr. Robinson
Blood-stained banner stands with Ole Jim Crow
Whoa whoa whoa
I hope you see, Mr. Robinson
Supremacy is scarcely on display
Hey, hey, hey … KKK

We'd like to know a little bit about you for our files
We'd like to help you learn to punctuate
Look around you all you see are disconcerted eyes
Troll around the site so you may feel at home

What’s wrong with you, Christianity
Jesus said get rid of all your dough
Whoa whoa whoa
God will not bless White Plutocracy
Prosperity is now for what you pray
Hey hey hey … led astray

Hiding in the darkest place where reason never goes
Toss it in the shredder with their science
It's a little secret just the Tillerson’s affair
Most of all you've got to hide it from the rubes

Coo-coo-ca-choo, Mr. President,
An isolation ward seems apropos
Woe woe woe
God take you, please, Mr. President
If I were you, I’d fear my judgement day
Hey, hey, hey … dossier

Parading Nazi symbols on a Sunday afternoon
The First Amendment sure is great!
Point a finger, rant and rave at
Blacks, Muslims, and Jews
Turn your head the other way, you lose

Where have you gone, Lady Liberty
The world no longer turns its eyes to you
Woo woo woo
What have you done, Mr. Donald J.
Our shining hill is draped in shades of grey
Go away … go away

Personally, I think that Simon and Garfunkel would be embarrassed ...

Oh, come on. “We’d like to help you learn to punctuate.” You have to admit that that was pretty good; to the point and perfect cadence. By the way, and in that vein, you don't need to italicize unless you're writing in a foreign language or quoting someone besides yourself. Also, why is there an ellipsis where the end of your sentence should be? There ya go.... (four dots if you end a sentence with an ellipsis, OK?)

Personally, it surprises me to learn that you’re familiar with the concept of “embarrassment.”

My music is much better than it sounds.
